FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. What is the ideal duration for deep sea fishing in Dubai? Is 2 to 3 hour duration sufficient?
A. Deep sea fishing in Dubai means starting your trip from Dubai Marina Yacht Club and sail through all landmark buildings before reaching to the deeper water. Since it takes some time to reach and then get back also, we recommend that you keep 4 hours for this purpose so that you do it in a relaxed manner.
Q. How much time does the cruising take?
A. Cruising does not mean speeding. It is done at a languid pace so that you may enjoy every scenery, every sea scape and every moment without any need to hurry back. Since Dubai has so many iconic structures full of superlatives, it should take 4 hours to complete it with a bit of additional activities such as swimming and snorkeling. So keep 4 hours for cruising.
